1983 Topps Super Veteran Set Update

30 down and just 5 to go. 

This set has been a blast to collect and I have learned quite a bit about these guys as I have shown them off to you.  I am eager to obtain the last 5 cards of this set so I can mark off another piece to my collection as being complete.  And I am sure that I will learn more about Tug McGraw, Nolan Ryan, Tony Perez, Kent Tekulve, and Sparky Lyle in the process.

Stay tuned – the final 5 cards should be all mine in the coming weeks!!!

Update: The 1983 Topps Super Veteran Set

Just a quick update on this set.  Of the 35 cards in the set I have secured 14.  That’s not too bad since I haven’t been aggressively going after these cards either.  I’m hoping to spend a little more time focusing on this set in the coming weeks as I shift away from buying cards for autographs and focus a little more attention on my player and subset collections.

Here are the cards as they appear today.  Hopefully more will be added to this display shortly.

A few weeks ago Dave from the Fielder’s Choice Baseball Card Blog posted his updated want lists.  To my surprise I had a few cards he needed that I pulled from some packs of 2008 Topps that I had bought but had no need for.  I happily offered these up to Dave and below was his gesture of gratefulness.

3 more cards for my 1983 Topps Super Veteran set – Bruce Sutter, Phil Neikro, and Rollie Fingers.

1970 Topps Fergie Jenkins League Leaders

1970 Topps Fergie Jenkins League Leaders

 Just another Fergie Jenkins card showing you how year in and year out, he was one of the best pitchers in the National League.  To be honored on a card alongside Tom Seaver, Phil Neikro, and Juan Marichal shows you just how well Fergie performed compared to other great pitchers from that era.
